One of the most unnoticed and underestimated human capacities is the ability to ask. To continually increase this fundamental ability is of great relevance for every person.

 Meme-Trashing Party: Today: Cause and Effect...11 comments
picture28 Jun 2003 @ 19:49
One of the most hideous, rampant & insane meme around is that of the human perception of "Cause and Effect". Buddha ranted about it 2,500 years ago, Nietzsche rubbed it into his readers' mind many times in various ways.

This meme persists, even makes its home in the brains of people who claim to have a 'rational' approach to Life, Universe and Everything.  More >

 The SnowQueen Meme, Contemp TV, and its Undoing - Part 13 comments

One of the most profound and startling impacts in my early childhood was H.C. Andersen's tale of the Snowqueen, a tale in seven parts. There was something in there that I didn't understand but I felt compelled all my life to solve this riddle. Now, nearly half a century later, I am still puzzled. But today, I can't claim the innocense of a little child anymore, just letting the tears flow with Gerda and Kay, and delegate the solutions to all of these crazy things to the next fifty years. Or can I?

Andersen, from the land of Kierkegaard and Ming the Mechanic, a world citizen nearly 200 years ago, described a Meme that now rules American TV, infesting and conquering the rest of the world, country after country. The antivirus still has to be developed. A call to arms for Bloggers (hint, hint)?  More >
